Well, this article I'm sure also involves massive amount of politics, but definitely sends a message about
chilled chlorine bath on chicken:

Putin Says Chlorine in Chickens Unsafe
by Dan Flynn | Jan 16, 2010

The letter said the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recommends the "use of hypochlorus (i.e. active chlorine) solutions as an effective antimicrobial.

"Based on a substantial body of scientific studies, FSIS' best practices recommendations is to use 20-50 ppm of free available chlorine in immersion chilling systems."

Bleach in chicken. Wow. Leave it to the government to try to save everyone from themselves. I checked another article and I'm glad to read that Canada doesn't use this practice.

Imagine that, all these other countries that don't use bleach and we're not dropping like flies. So there's yet another element out pets are subjected to if the chicken is "human grade." There must be some really OC people in government.

The first comment by John Munsell says it in a nutshell, really dead on point and is the truth. Also last comment by Peter about chlorine, bromine and fluorine leaching iodine from the thyroid with sub-clinical and  clinical thyroid dysfunction.

Russia Seeks to Cleanse Its Palate of U.S. Chicken

... But the science of the matter, it seems, is not the most important point. Rather, as Gennady Onishchenko, Russia’s chief sanitary officer, noted in an interview in the official newspaper Rossiiskaya Gazeta last month, the issue is one of principle.

“A problem has arisen with one country: the United States, which is again continuing to insist that we show them that it is harmful,” Mr. Onishchenko said. “We tell them, ‘Excuse me, we pay the money, so we set the conditions for what kind of meat we want and what kind we don’t.’

Why can't U.S. consumers get that message across to the food industry?
